ff7 graphics, top inch of screen freezes
« on: 2011-03-20 13:17:15 »
I installed FF7, the ff7 1.02 patch, the ff7_opengl-0.7.9b patch, the ff7music_install (which sucks so far), the Final_Fantasy_VII_Remix_v2-5-1_Installer, the ff7_chocobo_patch, and the TrueMotion2.0Setup.

I'm running windows7 on my PC.

The problem I'm having is that the top inch or two of my screen appears to be a freeze spot graphically when the game is running (not during the cutscenes though).  What ever was at the top of the screen sticks there while the game progresses and tries to load new images there.  Multiple images get stuck there, and the result is a blurr at the top of the screen.  It doesn't affect the game play so far, but it sucks and who would want to play the entire game like that?

Please help me if you can.  Thank you

ok I fixed it.  here's how i did it.  I went to the ff7_opengl.cfg and opened it with notepad.

There was a part that looked like this:

# set the window size (and fullscreen resolution) of FF7
# 0 means use original resolution (whatever ff7.exe provides)
# preserve_aspect adds black borders as needed to preserve a 4:3 aspect ratio
window_size_x = 1200
window_size_y = 800
preserve_aspect = no
fullscreen = yes

I remember my screen resolotion is 1366x768, so 800 is too high.  I changed the lines to look like this:

# set the window size (and fullscreen resolution) of FF7
# 0 means use original resolution (whatever ff7.exe provides)
# preserve_aspect adds black borders as needed to preserve a 4:3 aspect ratio
window_size_x = 1366
window_size_y = 768
preserve_aspect = yes
fullscreen = yes


now it's working fine.  I am going to try changing the preserve_aspect line to "= no" and see what happens because the graphics seem less quality all of a sudden.

I hope this might help someone else some day.

thanks.  best results were with preserve aspect = no.  it looks like this:

window_size_x = 1366
window_size_y = 768
preserve_aspect = no
fullscreen = yes
